A well-known lesbian couple and other South Florida personalities on Sunday will launch a new LGBTQ-oriented Spanish-language TV talk show, “Sobre todos los Generos” (“About All Genders”).

“Sobre todos los Generos,” which premieres at 8 p.m. Sunday on Mira TV, will shine a light on issues faced by the LGBTQ community, such as inequality and prejudice, said Susanna Taddei, who created the program with wife Ibetti Pérez Larralde, a radio and TV producer. Taddei is a spokeswoman for statewide LGBT-rights group Equality Florida.

A year ago, Larralde and Taddei donated six public service ads to Equality Florida “highlighting the challenges the LGBTQ community faces in our state,” Larralde said in a news release.

“After we finished the PSAs for Equality Florida, we realized the Spanish-speaking community needed a lot of information and there was nobody filtering or providing that kind of information in Spanish,” Taddei told the Miami Herald on Thursday.

The rest of the “Sobre todos los Generos” team: host Nestor Paz; South Florida drag stars Alexis “Marytrini” Fernandez and Vinna Rouge; entertainers Rachel Larralde and Fernando Ferro; and TV personalities Miriam Mill and Alejandro Condis, an El Nuevo Herald art critic.

“It’s the first time on Spanish television in the USA that a program like this is on the air,” Condis told the Miami Herald. “Everybody has a family member or a neighbor or a co-worker who is gay or transgender. We are everywhere. This program can help people understand those who are around them. This is a program about the LGBT community but not just for the LGBT community. It’s for everybody.”

“Sobre todos los Generos” is supported by Mira TV vice president Miguel Ferro (the show’s associate producer), Equality Florida, Miami-Dade LGBT rights group SAVE, national anti-defamation group GLAAD and Miami Herald Media Co.’s Palette magazine.

How to watch

“Sobre todos los Generos” (“About All Genders”) can be seen 8 p.m. Sunday on Mira TV, which is available on Comcast, DirecTV, AT&T Uverse and Atlantic Broadband.
